10 Things on an Apple Fan’s 2016 Wish List

When your favorite consumer tech company is also the best consumer tech company in the world, and said tech company is generally a magnet for hyperbole and blind customer loyalty -- while also producing more products at higher levels of quality than ever before -- what's left to really wish for? ...

For Apple TV fans, the new Apple TV is the long-awaited upgrade we've been pining for, and while it's a welcome addition to my living room, I'm only half as impressed as I thought I would be. After spending some quality time -- and some not-so-quality time -- I'll share my experience, which, it turns out, all comes down to this: ...

Appletizing Microsoft: All You Need Is Love

Bring On the New Apple TV – Streaming Service or Not

I've been waiting for a new Apple TV from Apple for years, and I've been disappointed each time a major Apple event came and went without one. Plus, I've been waiting for Apple to come along and disrupt the cable/satellite TV bundling status quo with some sort of a la carte streaming service, also to no avail ...

The Key to Apple Watch Success: Getting Enough Right the First Time

I still find wry joy in all the "Apple Watch Tanks" headlines from early July. There are some great gems, like "Apple Watch is a FLOP: Sales of the gadget have fallen by 90 percent since April, report claims" or "Analyst: Apple Watch selling worse than thought." ...

5 Things the Apple App Store Could Do Better

I haven't been thrilled with app discovery on the App Store for years, and while Apple has been tweaking things to make it better, it's pretty easy to enter the iOS App Store, look around, and come to the conclusion that only an infinitesimal fraction of 1.5 million apps must be worthy of showing off -- and unfortunately, Disney's "Palace Pets in Whisker Haven" is one of them...

The Last Apple Watch Review You’ll Ever Need to Read

If you're thinking about getting an Apple Watch and have been on the fence, this review is for you. Why?

Take Your Apple Watch Face and Love It!

While Apple is known for fantastic product design, it's not known for customization. For instance, the first iPhone hit the world nearly eight years ago, and yet our "customizable" home screen options are limited to the organization of app icons and some wallpaper choices that can produce color tints through translucent layers ...

The Apple Watch as Bullsh*t Filter? We Can Only Hope

In "iPhone Killer: The Secret History of the Apple Watch," Wired's David Pierce doesn't reveal any serious secrets -- because Apple never does -- but he does illuminate the early days of the Apple Watch, centering on an interview with Kevin Lynch, Apple's vice president of technology.
